What a difference a president makes. The economy is booming and the future seems bright. America is wearing a pair of shades. Here is an excerpt from the Hill:
The Wall Street Journal asked 68 business, financial and academic economists who was responsible for the strengthening of the economy, and most “suggested Mr. Trump’s election deserves at least some credit” for the upturn.
A majority said the president had been “somewhat” or “strongly” positive for job creation, gross domestic product growth and the rising stock market.
The pros cite the White House’s push for lighter regulation and the recent tax bill as critical to a pro-growth environment; more than 90 percent of the group thought the tax bill would boost GDP expansion over the next two years.
I remember when a business owner from Georgia publicly declared he would not hire anyone until King Obama was out of office. Someone reported him to the FBI as a national security risk, I kid you not. The Secret Service ended up interviewing this guy. What a farce!
I can personally state I wouldn’t have bought a brand new 2018 Ford Transit Connect had Hillary Clinton won. I would’ve kept my 1997 Ford pickup truck on life support, because I simply do not have faith in the Democratic Party’s socialist policies. All I needed was a hint of optimism and a president who doesn’t want to fundamentally transform this country into a third-world shithole.
